Reconstruction of Great Guild Hall in Riga gets under way

Reconstruction of Great Guild Hall in Riga, which houses the Latvian National Symphony Orchestra, has got under way by Rere Meistari company, the project is overseen by Valsts Nekustamie Ipasumi (State Real Estate, VNI) and its total cost is estimated at EUR 14.5 million, as VNI board member Jelena Gavrilova informed LETA.

The project will be carried out according to the design – build in two stages: during the first stage, the building’s energy efficiency will be improved, while the second stage will see reconstruction of the edifice, changes to the wiring system, provision of environmental accessibility, and others.

In total, around EUR 14.5 million, including value added tax, will be invested in reconstruction of the Great Guild Hall, which the Culture Ministry has secured from the Recovery and Resilience Facility.

Taking into account the cultural and historical status of the building and in order to preserve its cultural heritage and architectural value, there are a number of special requirements for the reconstruction project, which is why the project will be carried out in close cooperation with the Latvian National Cultural Heritage Board, said Gavrilova.

Reconstruction of the Great Guild Hall is to be completed within the next two years.

The Great Guild Hall is one of the oldest public buildings in the Baltics, a cultural and historical monument dating back to the first half of the 14th century. The building has undergone several transformations and has been extended several times over the years.
